African Oddballs

African Oddballs in-stock ready to ship! We specialize in importing and housing exotic freshwater oddball fish. AFS groups these “oddballs” by region: African, South American, and Asian. AFS avoids collecting species known to be harvested improperly, particularly in the African region. Certain species, such as Arapaima, are endangered in the wild and AFS only imports these species through CITES certification to ensure future sustainability.

AquariumFishSale imports African oddballs from Nigeria and Senegal.
